Can You Really go Longer Between Oil Changes?

When it's time to change the oil, many people rely on the little plastic sticker that many service technicians place on their windshield. Did you know that if you choose "quick lube" type places for your auto service needs, that you could be changing your car's oil more often than necessary?

Older vehicles required more frequent oil changes than modern ones. Years ago, consumers would need to change out their oil every 3,000 miles or so to avoid damage to their engines. However, with modern engines and oils, you can often get your oil changed at much higher intervals, saving you time and money!

If your car is less than twenty years old, you most likely do not need to get your oil changed every 3,000 miles. The best place to check for this information is by looking inside of the owner's manual that came with your vehicle. You can also chat with a trusted Volvo service professional, like the team here at Smithtown Volvo Cars. We are happy to advise you on the maintenance of your vehicle so you can enjoy miles of adventure!
